Police and security personnel last night put the highest building in the country, FINDECO House, on lockdown when a man jumped to his death.
And Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo has confirmed receiving the report but said officers were still on the ground to get full details on what could have led to the suicide.
This was after the body of an unidentified man was spotted on the roof of the car park by people who were working in offices at the same building.
The unidentified man allegedly committed suicide by jumping off one of the floors in unclear circumstances.
There was no eye witness to the suspected suicide but word quickly went round that there was a body with a crushed head and covered in blood forcing police to rush to the scene before putting the building on lock down. The incident happened in the late afternoon as people were preparing to close their offices.
By 18:00 hours, a huge crowd had gathered on the ground floor with a view to getting a glimpse of the body which was not in plain view because of the position it had landed (ceiling of the car park is above the first floor).
The body was only visible from the windows of higher floors within the building.
